downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hop over to for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Try animating - the Aardman way

Ever watched Wallace and Gromit or Morph (remember him?) and wanted to try animating for yourself? Well, creating a stop motion animation has never been easier (according to Aardman) now that you can get Aardman's Animate It! software on your iPhone and iPad.

Use your phone's camera to shoot frames of your animation, using the software to help you line up each shot and stitch it all together. There's also lots of animation hints, tips and inspiration to get you started on the official Animate It website.

• Download the Animate It app for just 69p/$0.99/0,79 € from the iTunes store now »
